For cold and rainy nights, my husband and I love to slurp on a bowl of hot noodles. On this particular chilly day, I was hungry so I viewed a lot of YouTube videos of people eating noodles (Yup I'm a loser) and saw many having their fill of PHO!

I immediately sent a YM to my husband declaring that I was craving for some PHO HOA and that there was nothing he could do about it except take me there. Pronto. When that happens, my husband is powerless since I called dibs on what to have for a Friday date night!!! So after he picked me up at TAPE office, we headed straight to PHO HOA for my Vietnamese fix. 

When we were done, I was happy as a bee and my tummy was bulging more than usual.

We truly LOVE PHO HOA. For us, it offers the best PHO noodles in town!!!

And I call dibs on that as well :P


Doesn't the girl in the front menu remind you of heroines from Filipino classic komiks? (Agua Bendita anyone?) :)

The meynuh!!

Interiors of PHO HOA Wilson Avenue in San Juan is bright and spacious. So perfect if you want to relax on a rainy night while slurping on hot bowls of Pho!

I love the space and space loves me!

Each order of Pho in PHO HOA comes with a plate of fresh vegetables such as Bean sprouts, Basil, and a wedge of lemon to put in your soup. If you want some extra heat then ask for some small red chili!

My carnivorous husband who was scandalously hungry by this time had a splitting head ache when I told him he could munch on some veggies while waiting for his order.

He told me I was so EVIL.


I ordered PHO HOA's Meatball Pho (P199.00) and it was smokin' and bubblin' hot when it arrived.

I proceeded to add the basil leaf by leaf...

Does Henry Cavill love me...

... or does he love me.... NOT? 

Oh he had crooked teeth and chest hair anyway! >:( !!!


For that extra citrus flavor, squeeze in the lemon wedge over your PHO HOA meatball pho.

Need more heat for your PHO HOA bowl? Then give this bottle a spritz or two!

And there you have it... a PERFECT rainy companion from PHO HOA. Much better and tastier than any umbrella or raincoat!

Not that I would ever dare bite on a raincoat.

UNLESS it was worn by Henry Cavill.... tee hee!

Take a short blow on your PHO HOA noodles...

...close your eyes to savor all of the vietnamese goodness...

... open wiiiide....

... then give out a big... long... SLUUUURPPP!

I know we are not in Japan but it is more fun to eat that way though. He he he he!


If you put too much chili in your pho, THIS is what you'll look like to your date afterwards.

That's me all teary-eyed and sniffing. I asked for 2 glassfuls of water, ASAP.

My loving husband laughed at me and took pictures instead.

Ha ha ha ha!

After I cooled down, I went back to my wonderful bowl of PHO HOA.

The husband was hungry that he killed time by imitating some of the favorite poses of Andrei, our youngest son.

I'm sorry yub, it just does not work on you.

He munched on some of PHO HOA's Fried Rice Paper Roll with Pork and Vermicelli (P127.00) in the meantime and was happy with the flavorful meaty crunch every bite gave.

I like dipping this PHO HOA spring roll in their special vinaigrette sauce with a bit of chili! YUM!

Let's EAT!

I forgot to mention even if my husband LOVES noodles, he has an aversion to pho noodles because of it's lemon grass after taste. 

Yup! I told you. THAT's how much he LOATHES his vegetables.

(Tee hee That's Game of Thrones lingo for you)

Yub's order arrived and he shed tears of joy.

I'm just kidding! That is just how much he loves PHO HOA's Caramelized Chicken Drumettes (P165.00).

Or am I? 

Yub proceeded to devour his PHO HOA chicken wings. He always eats it with an extra order of plain rice!

He always share with me a piece of the PHO HOA chicken.

Yes I know. JUST ONE. He promised me the moon... the stars... even the entire Philippine archipelago... BEFORE getting married.

Now after 6 years (the date of this day) of being married, he could ONLY spare me 1 drumstick! GRRR!

Ladies do NOT forget to specify that in your marriage contracts: 

"In the event of proportioning a meal in an establishment (e.g. restaurants), WIFE is entitled to more than 1 piece of the CHICKEN drummettes which the HUSBAND has in his claim".

Or something like that.

Oh look at him gobbling mercilessly at his PHO HOA chicken drummettes while I only get 1 piece and the bones to suck on after?

Kidding! I love the white bones and always beg for it. Tee hee!

ERICJAZ Foodies, eatin!!!

And we are done. 

See the chicken bone at your 5 oclock? THAT'S how I suck my bones!

Maybe that's why my hubby loves me. (Wink wink!)
